US MC Kiki Ceac ("K-The-I???" to his many admirers) returns with a single release from his critically acclaimed album, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
"Finger Painting" demonstrates everything that's best about the record - a short, sharp shock of a tune produced by Thavius Beck (perhaps best known for his work with Saul Williams), this is punchy, epic d&b-influenced concept-psychedelia, Ceac threading his complex, clever, emotive lyrics over and through a variety of subjects, the whole packed into less than three minutes. To complete the package Thavius Beck has made an exclusive remix, a kind of rave anthem for the credit crunch generation, all pummeling keyboard lines and unbridled aggression. Available now, buy from the Ninjashop.
"A wildstyle collision of science-fiction electronics and semi-industrial beats, interwoven with dense wordplay reminiscent of KRS-1." - Q, 4/5 "This album rewards as much as it refuses to compromise" - The Wire
